Amongst my many post it notes and doodles in my sketch book is a little wish, a dream if you like, to one day be published in a book! That little post it note took one step further today to being realised thanks to Kristi O’Meara Founder of Patternbase.
Kristi is creating a book called PATTERNBASE: A Collection of Contemporary Textile + Surface Design and a few of my designs are to be included.
(insert happy dance and a billion smiley faces here) words can’t say how happy!

And I am in good company….Congratulations also to my fellow classmates Miranda Mol, Chickaprint, Faye Brown, Femi Ford, Mel Smith Designs, Majo.bv and there is many more but as I haven’t seen a facebook update or blog post I thought I would keep quiet in case they want to shout the news out first themselves. Group hug!!
Where ever we travel I take photos (lots of photos!) and maybe a few little souvenirs, a postcard, a ticket stub, things like that and I put them neatly into a box or into a file on the computer. I will look at them occasionally and they mean something to me but today I think I may have fell in love……with the Travel Journals of Natalie Ratkovski.
